What’s this all about?
Jack Horner is a world-renowned paleontologist and dinosaur expert, and Michael Crichton’s inspiration for Dr. Alan Grant, Jurassic Park’s main character. He is technical advisor on all Jurassic Park and World films, and his work has been viewed on television, TED Talks, and a variety of other media by millions of people around the world.
In collaboration with famed artist Fabio Pastori, one of the most distinguished modern paleo-artists alive today, Jack Horner presents his views on what dinosaurs might have looked and sounded like, showing vivid colors and unique accoutrements across a variety of species.
All proceeds from the sale of this collection go to Horner Science Group, a mission-driven organization whose vision is to inspire interest, understanding, and real passion for dinosaurs, paleontology, and all sciences through personal discovery. We wish to galvanize adventurers of all ages to explore the vibrant and astonishing world of dinosaurs through Jack Horner’s revolutionary scienfitic discoveries and theories.

I’m new to NFTs. How do I buy one?
All purchases must be made in ethereum (ETH), a popular crypto-currency used on Opensea.io.
The first thing to do is set up your own crypto-wallet through Metamask or the wallet of your choice. It really is an easy process to set up! Once you’ve set it up, head over to Opensea.io and login using your wallet.
Then you need to ‘fund’ your crypto-wallet with funds transferred through a crypto-exchange, for example Coinbase. Transfer funds from your own bank to your Coinbase account, then from your Coinbase account to your Metamask wallet. Once you can see the funds in your Metamask wallet, you’re good to go.
Navigate to the Jack Horner’s Dinosaurs – The Origin Collection on Opensea. Find what you like, and press Buy Now. When you make a purchase on OpenSea they will take the correct amount of Ethereum from your crypto-wallet along with some gas fees to fund the purchase. It is as simple as that!
And now you are all ready to go to OpenSea and start an NFT purchase.
